Plant a Tree - It's Texas Arbor Day

Kudos to MobilOil Federal Credit Union, which donated 2,100 trees to fourth grade students across Southeast Texas. Teachers will pass out the trees to children so they can plant them at home or in their schoolyards. What a great opportunity to teach children about the many ways trees benefit the environment - and enrich the soul.

Like the idea? Take your child to an area nursery today and let him or her pick out a tree. Sit down together and do research on the best ways to plant a tree. It's something they will remember forever, and perhaps carry down to their own children. Just think - one simple act could begin a legacy that your grandchildren always will connect to you.
